The Littlest Redhead

  • by

When a new baby arrives it is always a special time. But when a baby comes home after being in the NICU for awhile, it is so much sweeter when they come home, safe and sound. This little girl spent some time in that place and is now home and able to cuddle with her family. When held by her momma she would just gaze up at her, as if she couldn’t get enough of looking at mom. So sweet!

Welcome home little one! We are so happy to have you with your family!!

Baby Girl

Lots more really great shots from this little girl and her siblings!

I still have a few b-day shots that never made it on here and lots more from Australia too. Oh my!!

What can I even say about such a sweet little thing?

Christmas Cards… it’s that time of year again!

Ok, so November is upon us. “Can’t escape November.”– The Office

I have been asked by the few folks I have photographed this season what I do for Christmas card orders. Well, typically I am told which images a client would like for the card and I create something unique.

I’ve been doing a bit of research and I saw a “newspaper” used for a family newsletter. I found a site with a list of the best newspaper design and got inspired to create this:

I’d like to see what could be done for a folded cards’ interior pages (this example is for a 5×7 flat card). What do you think? Are there any designs out there you would like to see offered by Stacie Smith Photography?

Below is what I have uploaded to the card ordering section of all photo galleries to help you choose your favorite card design. You may also have me design something completely custom. Just choose your images and card size and I’ll run with it, showing you proofs each step of the way.

A Thank You!

The other day my friend came over a “did” my closet. Basically she said, “Get rid of THAT, it is U-G-L-Y!” No, she never said anything even close to that. She was always positive and tactful. She did use the word frumpy to describe my sweater that Zach hates. She said it COULD be frumpy if worn with the wrong thing. See, and that’s why she was there, to help me avoid wearing the wrong thing. The sweater stays.
After going through my fall/winter wardrobe, a wish list was created. Skinny jeans were purchased. Get this… we even went shopping together without the kids. I don’t think I’ve been shopping with a girlfriend (sans kids) since before India was born. It was like being a teenager again. By the way, that necklace I didn’t buy would have looked awesome with my outfit today.
To say “thanks” for helping with my lack-luster closet I photographed her kids. They were impeccably dressed, of course.
